of seattle with the comparable ordinance was allowed to regulate yellow page distribution under the first amendment. unfortunately a few weeks ago the three-judge circle panel reverse that had case found that yellow pages are subject to full first amendment protections. as i have stated before, i strongly disagree with the 9th circuit's ruling which is a misreading of the first amendment to protect polluters with 1.6 million unwanted yellow page books every year. based on the same logic as the citizens united ruling that treats the free speech rights of corporate super p-a-cs to be the same as real people. but in light of that decision and in consultation with our city attorney, this legislation would be recommended to suspend implementation of our pilot program at least until future appellate proceedings determines that the seattle law is consistent with the first amendment. and, colleagues, i also want to mention that i'm still committed to finding policies that reduce yellow page blight and i'm working with the city attorney to hopefully draft new legislation to find alternate approach
